Yep, he is a mii costume

tbh even tho I haven't played cuphead I was more happy to see his mii costume and the new pass then another FE fighter

I hope the next fighter will be better then this.


To be clear the fighter looks fun and I don't hate it. Just wanted Sora more then blith.

in other news cp 2077 got delayed

Guess its for the best so they can releace a better game

Still this news after the dissapointing smash news is... Just more dissapointing.

Yet another FE character? Okay I guess but honestly I wish they would have branched out instead of just adding in more FE characters.

Right? They should add Bob Hoskins already. And not as a Mii skin, as a real fighter.

To be honest, I’m not so much excited as validated. Clearly this remains a constant in this crazy world.

I’m one of those FE fans that sees how the number of characters in Smash makes some people angry with the whole franchise.

So I am starting yet another Skyrim playthrough... This game is really good at pulling me back in time and time again. It is a wonder that Bethesda went from making games like Skyrim to shit like Fallout 76.

Yeah that kind of happens with me a lot with Skyrim, once I reach a certain level or beat the three big DLC quests I kind of go back to Helgen and do it all again, because I feel like an OP God.

Imagine being shocked that greed, corruption, and abuse of power is being used in politics, that's normal. Ethics and morality are for the weak and spineless, and leads to a doomed failure in politics or any industry in general. The media is a tool used by the big political parties to fund propaganda against the other side, and the people who consume it are the sheep being used, fueling the continuing partisan divide. Time for compromise is over, time to end the reign of corrupt politicians on all sides of politcis and their crony capitalist bourgeoisie buddies through force.

The next Fallout needs to be good, otherwise the franchise with a respectable history before Fallout 76 will be in big trouble: that is bad for their fans because I imagine that they will depend on Fallout’s recovery to eventually uncover all the Vaults.

Hi guys. Does anyone play Doom here? In particular I am asking about modding GZDoom. TLDR I know how to get the game to load a custom wad for maps. But once it's loaded how the hell do I actually select that custom map? Like there ain't no menu options. Those all just take me to vanilla doom levels.
Purpelia does not reflect my actual world views. In fact, the vast majority of Purpelian cannon is meant to shock and thus deliberately insane. I just like playing with the idea of a country of madmen utterly convinced that everyone else are the barbarians. So play along or not but don't ever think it's for real.

I mean, for many fans of the series Fallout 3 lost their respect. And, for many later fans of the series, Fallout 4 did the same.

The Fallout franchise really just has a history of replacing its entire fanbase every decade or so. Luckily we got Wasteland 2 out of the mix, and are getting Wasteland 3 later this year!

Fallout is an odd one honestly. 1 was great. 2 was meh. Like not bad by any means. But it was just more of the same. Didn't really grip me. 3 was good. Like properly good. But not great. 4 I did not play, but from the reviews I get that I wouldn't enjoy it anyway. So I guess that the franchise has just been going downhill.

I loved 1, couldn't finish 2, thought 3 was not great, am very ambivalent about 4, but fully believe that New Vegas is the best of the franchise.

So I guess I'm in the "bethesda bad" camp.

I think it was Fallout 76 that things really got bad. I recall generally average reviews by the gamers, but a lot of videos about mods and behind-the-scenes debugging, such as the ability to visit locations used in development (such as the pre-war TV studio).

What really diminishes 3 from my perspective is just how nonexistent the characters of your companions are. Like if those had been as fleshed out as something like those in Mass Effect, KOTOR or other RPGs it would have been a fantastic game. As it was, the lack of character to them really diminished my roleplaying experience overall.

Well personally I just find it a little annoying(though this does not make me like Smash or appreciate the work that has been put into any less) on how many FE characters there are. I have no problems with the franchise or characters but I would have liked to see Smash branch out and bring in characters from other franchises instead of bringing in yet another FE character.
